Uniresearch is the official coordinator of SEAO2-CDR, leading the project on a management level. The scientific coordination is in the hands of the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton. Uniresearch is supporting the consortium with the day-to-day project management and administration.
SEAO2-CDR will enhance the technical viability of ocean-based CDR by characterising the key system boundaries, processes, material and energy flows of different approaches. It will also develop the social, regulatory, political, economic and ethical frameworks required to facilitate and support OCDR uptake at scale. Finally, it will provide a deep understanding of realistic implementation policies and pathways via an integrated assessment of system-level effects.
The project consortium consists of 13 partners from 7 countries.
